Getting Your Life Back

If you’re addicted to alcohol, prescription pain medicines, or other mood-altering substances, it can feel like you’ve lost control of your life. The compassionate providers at Benefis Behavioral Health can help you take back that control and enjoy life again.

Our staff includes a physician who is board-certified in addiction medicine and other dedicated professionals. We understand that your struggle with addiction is unique to you, and we design a recovery plan that fits your specific situation. Your care plan will likely include medication-assisted treatment as well as individual and group therapy.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Because addiction is an illness, certain medications can help you recover. Your provider may recommend one of these medicines as part of your overall care plan:

  • Suboxone (buprenorphine plus naloxone). This medicine can reduce your withdrawal symptoms and cravings for opioids without causing euphoria. It’s given as a film that dissolves in your mouth. Suboxone has a high rate of success with helping people remain opioid free.
  • Vivritrol (naltrexone). This medicine, given as an injection, blocks the effects of alcohol or opioid use. Dosage and scheduling vary with each patient. Vivritrol is an extended-release medication, so its effects slowly diminish over time.
  • Sublocade (buprenorphine). This newer form of buprenorphine is given as an injection once a month. Some people who are addicted to opioids benefit from using Sublocade, which may be easier to stay with than a daily medication.

Individual and Group Therapy

At Benefis, we offer cognitive behavioral therapy, which can help you change harmful patterns of behavior. This talk therapy gives you tools to identify challenging and stressful situations and find better ways to respond to them.

You will meet with your counselor one-on-one, and participate in a group with other people who share similar struggles. All therapy is provided in a comfortable and safe setting.

Cognitive behavioral therapy is effective in treating people struggling with substance abuse and bipolar disorder. These conditions often occur together – if you have bipolar disorder, your risk is much higher for developing addiction to drugs or alcohol.

Your provider at Benefis Behavioral Health will recognize these challenges and work with you to develop the best plan for your care.

Focused Care for Expectant Moms

If you’re pregnant and addicted to any mood-altering substance, Benefis Behavioral Health can help. We understand that you want the best for your baby, and we don’t judge your behavior or your situation. Instead, we’re here for you with:

  • Prenatal care that considers the effects of your addiction on your baby
  • Labor and delivery with providers who are experts in caring for new babies who have been exposed to alcohol, opioids, or other drugs before birth
  • Post-partum care that’s right for your situation
  • Expert care for your new baby as he or she withdraws from an addictive substance
